Naomi Makemie Presbyterian Church Onancock, Virginia
Our Mission Statement
“Do what is fair and just to your neighbor, be compassionate and
loyal in your love, and don’t take yourself too seriously—take God seriously.” Micah 6:8
Compassionate, Fair and Loyal
Naomi Makemie Presbyterian Church has an ongoing Christian Education program.
There is a weekly Adult Education Program offered to all those interested that meets in the Belote Room (upstairs in the education wing) on Sunday mornings at 9:30 am. The discussion themes vary from professional materials to the interests of the class. This is an active class that meets all through the year.
Sunday School for children and youth is alive and well at NMPC. They meet the second and fourth Sunday each month and are studying the stories in the Bible. They are using The Story for Children by ZONDERkids.com program and have studied the Story of Creation, Adam and Eve, Noah and Abraham. The children/youth are memorizing the Lord’s Prayer. A Parent Page is sent home every few weeks that can be used to reinforce the lesson and to give you opportunities to discuss it with your child. Laura Chuquin-Naylor and Joan May are the leaders.
The third Sunday of the month the youth
meet with Teacher Tracey Arvidson to engage
in mission together.
We have a paid nursery worker Retta Isdell
who is available every Sunday to care for
infants to 5 year olds.
We have a well-equipped nursery
on the second floor of the education wing.
In addition to the regular educational programs of the Church, there are frequently special Biblical and personal growth opportunties offered.
HALLELUJAH! The Bible and Handel's Messiah
A study for both the music lover and the biblical seeker, it explores the scriptural texts of Handel's Messiah. This study offers careful examination of the texts and opens doors to your community in a new way.
Join us on Thursdays in Lent from 11 to 12 noon in the Makemie Fellowship Room at Naomi Makemie Church. Bring your Bibles. Handouts for notetaking will be provided. We’ll pull out the choir versions and even sing along with the music.
